NOBODY puts baby in a corner!

Unfortunately, there's no happy ending like in Dirty Dancing that I can see right now.

You know, I tried to give certain parties [one in particular] a heads-up for an upcoming event while qualifying that things were tentative, not set in stone.

And watched in horror as things just got totally out of control.

And the cherry on top? Finding out just today that Kosh does NOT have that particular day off.

Now, if that certain party had not gone crazy and bought plane tickets already, I wouldn't think twice about rescheduling [no denying I'd be a bit sad, cos that date was kinda significant, but hey, I know I have to be practical mah!] our event - after all, NOTHING was set in stone.

Except somehow it *did* get set in stone by others. By their actions of cancelling presentations. Of buying tickets. Things that were not meant to be done until things were certain. But they were done anyway.

So even tho Kosh's now-known schedule for September shows two other workable dates, we feel constrained [backed into a corner, if you will, hence the title of this post] to make the "original" date work by hook or by crook because certain parties have already shelled out tons of dough on plane tickets to get here. And you and me know that chances are very high that these tickets are not changeable once issued, eh? Or, changeable but you pay thru the nose...

But hey, ever the optimist [haha] I'm now waiting for responses to see if there is any chance of changing the tickets anyway.

Can't hurt to ask.

But in the meantime, I'm going to have to go with the worst-case scenario of Kosh not having the day/weekend off and therefore having family visit for a faux-event.

Oh what fun.

okay, in reality, Kosh probably could get that particular day off, but that would involve poor low man on the doctor totem pole calling in favors he doesn't even really HAVE yet, y'know?

Like I said before - i will be SO GLAD when this is all over.

I *so* need like twenty tubs of Dublin Mudslide right now.

Would probably taste salty tho.

Bah.

[silver lining? at least the news came today instead of yesterday and ruining the day]

[btw - no worries, I ain't obsessing on this... after all, I'm taking steps to address all this - finding out options, then going from there. But right now? Right now I really just need to sit and steep in some rage, because I feel like hollering I TOLD YOU SO wondering if it can be heard all the way to Malaysia]

Noritta Samsudin: Case closed? WTF?

I was amazed to read that Datuk Mustapha Abdullah, the city police chief considers the Noritta Samsudin murder case closed. (Click here and here for some articles)

Background
In July 2004, one En Hanif Basree Abd Rahman was acquitted and discharged by the court on the murder of Noritta. Of course, the months leading up to that ruling made for gross reading in the local newspapers… Early on I decided to just not read the papers, as it was obvious that the murder victim, who seems to have been a high-class callgirl, was the one being judged. I’m certain I did the right thing, for as time went by, more and more people started complaining about the level of detail being reported by the papers. Details about tears in the vagina, and age thereof seemed to be the focus of the court, rather than on the clients. Then again, from early on it was rumoured that many VIPs were among the victim’s “customers”, hence the blinkered focus on the victim rather than her clients. And the clients who…

BOH Seri Songket flavored teas

For many a year, boxes of BOH's Seri Songket flavored tea have served as handy buah tangans for relatives and friends in Switzerland and the USA, providing exotic teas in an exquisite bit of packaging. I'd not tasted any of these teas for myself, though, so this time around on my trip to Malaysia I made it a point to get me a few boxes of my own.

I picked three: Earl Grey with Tangerine; Passion Fruit; and Lime & Ginger; and have tasted two out of the three so far. According to Moomykin, the unlikely Lychee Rose combination is surprisingly good, so I'll grab that next time. Other flavors available in theory are Cinnamon; Clove & Cardamom; Mango; and Vanilla.

Review of the Seri Songket Passion Fruit flavored tea:
I've had this twice so far.

When you open the sachet, the smell/flavor is rather overpowering. But it all disappears when the teabag is steeped in hot water.

The first time, I used one bag to make 4 cups of tea. It seemed a touch watery, and tasted j…

It's been a while...

It's been so long.

Here's what's been going on. I had one kid, then another. Thing One / Nova was my first ever exposure to a kid. I'd never changed a diaper until he came along, and even then I deferred to the hubs or the NICU nurses before I forced myself to overcome that ?fear?.

He is my first. So I always wondered during tough times, was it just me? Or was it also him?

Turns out, it was us both.


He starts First Grade this August. He's currently being (re-)evaluated for an IEP (Individualised Education Plan). ADHD. ODD. ASD. SPD. The journey to these labels was a long one. And still ongoing because I don't think we have it quite right yet. But the labels help. I fought against getting labels. But now I seek them. Anything to help understand. Never in a million years would I have foreseen me medicating my kids. Yet here I am, seeking new meds, getting him a genetic test that should help identify which medications should help him, since the usual suspects see…
